  2. Strategies and priorities for the next 12 months.

This planning framework enables the University to utilise both a 'top-down' and 'bottom-up' approach to its planning process to ensure alignment between strategy and operation.

  1. Establish the roles and functions, context/background, opportunities, challenges and future directions of the School / Directorate; and
